Zombie party girl extraordinaire, Amanda Feral, is frighteningly close to entering her own personal Hell. She is scraping rock bottom; car is repo’d, boyfriend takes a hike, and Reapers trying to wring blood out of her turnip. Really, how is a poor zombie supposed to cope with all of this stress?
He takes a lot of crap from Amanda, but Scott is on his last nerve. She has taken this loving, caring, and infinitely horny wolf boy for granted for the last time.
Rubbing two nickels together would be a step up for Amanda, but she has a plan, if she can stomach Johnny Birch long enough not to eat him. He holds the key to getting her, if not out of debt to the Reapers, at least into a new pair of strappy stilettos, but like everything else in her life, this goes bottom up before it can even begin. Amanda must make some quick decisions if she is going to salvage her undead life and her relationship with Scott. Johnny wanted her as a judge on his pathetic little show, but when he becomes the main attraction, Amanda hones in on a solution that could be the answer to all of her prayers.
This is like an X rated version of “Death Becomes Her”, but without the six figure actors to draw in the masses. There really is no identifying with the characters, despite the fact they are zombies, werewolves, and vampires, they are simply too over the top to be believable, but that is just the point. This story takes your average paranormals to the extreme, adds in some seriously raunchy humor, and pits them against each other in the basest ways possible. Total disregard for anything mainstream holds all of the appeal for this disturbingly hilarious novel.
